The Weekend That Was - last in September style

We kicked off the weekend with a Mexican fiesta at Dad & Carol's. Ole!
Saturday morning bathroom cleaning and food prep: scrambled eggs with broccoli and cheese for this week's breakfasts. Turkey barley veggie soup for lunches.
I headed north for a wine tour to celebrate Aunt Carrie's 60th. Glorious weather and a fabulously fun day celebrating one of my favorite ladies. I was a good boozer and drank a lot of water, rendering me fit come Sunday morning. p.s. I think we encountered vampires. I'm not kidding.
I did a self mani & pedi (OPI Queen of d'Nile and Essie Penny Talk) and started Crazy Rich Asians.

One of this week's dinners: cowboy stew, recipe courtesy of my lovely work Kim - 1.5 lb ground beef browned and drained, 2 cans of mixed veg, 2 cans of rotel (drained), a can of black beans and 2 cans of minestrone soup. Heat through. I'll make corn bread to accompany this on Tuesday.

Sunday dinner and one of my favorite comfort foods - Judy's Chicken: season chicken breasts. Top with slices of deli cheese (I used Cooper Sharp). Cover with a can of cream of chicken soup. Top with sliced tomatoes (or if they're not in season, drain a big can of petite diced well and top with those). Final layer: melt a bit of butter and mix with Stove Top. Bake at 375 for 45 minutes. To be an extra fat ass, serve with buttery egg noodles and a side of green beans.

The return of The Good Wife.
The return of Homeland.

My TV-loving self is atwitter with glee.

Where did September go? What did you get into this weekend?
